    Sharanya and Abhijat are fellows with Teach For India (TFI). This piece gives a first hand account of Sharanya's and Abhijat's fascinating journey of teaching underprivileged children in the slums of Mumbai over the past 2 years. The transformational experiences that Teach For India provides to both - the fellows and their students, inspired us to document their stories over a few days in Mumbai, earlier this year.
